what does it cost?
In most cases fellows' participation is paid for by their employer, so fees are set on sliding scale based on the organisation's staff budget.
This way larger organisations pay more of the full cost of running the fellowship and smaller organisations can still participate. The cost of running the program remains heavily subsidised by Australian Progress.
Fees vary slightly across the various fellowships, because retreats vary in length and location, however they are approximately in the following ranges:
- Staff expenditure under $500,000 per annum: $2000 - $2500 per fellow
- Staff expenditure between $500,000 and $3,000,000 per annum: $3,200 - $3,900 per fellow
- Staff expenditure over $3,000,000 per annum: $4,500 - $5,200 per fellow
- For Profit (and for purpose) organisations: $6,000 per fellow
